How Should I Prepare For My Saline Tattoo Removal Appointment?
If you don’t like your tattoo anymore or there is any mistake in your tattoo you can lighten and remove it. This isn’t a big deal as a safe and effective procedure is available known as Saline Tattoo Removal.
In this removal process, the experts penetrate the skin with a saline solution (salt+purified water) to break up the tattoo pigment and pull it out of the skin. Instead of injecting ink underneath the skin like in tattooing and microblading, the experts pull it out. This is a reverse process.
The saline tattoo removal process is effective. But, before you come for the appointment, you should prepare yourself. Your preparation will increase the success rate of the procedure.
What should you do?
Go for a patch test, if the technician says
A patch test is for your safety. It defines if your skin will accept the removal solution. The patch test becomes important if you have any allergies or a darker skin tone. It’s because darker skin tones have a higher risk of hyper/hypo pigmentation.
When the dark tone skin breaks during the procedure, it turns much darker or lighter than your normal tone. You should book this patch test a day or two before your main appointment day.
Seek a doctor’s consultation
Saline tattoo removal is safe. But, if you have a serious medical condition, you should seek a doctor’s consultation. This becomes more important if you are regularly under a doctor’s supervision and take medications that are not safe for the process.
The doctor will check your condition and advise you on the procedure. Sometimes, the doctor recommends delaying the process if any issue is found. It’s better to bring a letter from your doctor and inform the tattoo removal technician before the procedure.
Avoid going out frequently during the daytime
Sun tan is not good for the procedure, especially in the area that has to be treated. The tanned area creates a problem during the procedure as the shades of the tattoo are not visible properly. Sometimes, the procedure can take a wrong turn on the suntanned skin. So come to the procedure without a tan.
To prevent this, you shouldn’t go out frequently during the daytime. You should prefer doing your chores after the sun sets. If it’s important, you should apply sunscreen all over your body. You should start this routine 2 weeks before your appointment day.
Wear loose clothes for the appointment
We advise you to wear loose clothes during the saline tattoo removal so that you are comfortable. When the tattoo is dark, the procedure takes time, making it difficult for you to sit for hours in tight clothes.
Other than this, tight clothes create problems during the procedure as well. Your movement gets restricted and it becomes challenging for the technicians to reach the tattooed parts. Thus, the procedure time increases.
With these preparation tips, we are sure the result of the saline tattoo removal procedure will be as expected. Also, you will not face any problems during and after the procedure.
